STRUCTURAL AND MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VERB-NOUN COLLOCATIONS IN GERMAN.

N. O. Moisieieva

Abstract


The article investigates the verb-noun collocations in German. The author carries out a detailed analysis of the currently existing scientific approaches to this type of phrases, of criteria for identifying them as a separate class, and gives them the determination, based on the specifics of their grammaticalization and lexicalization. In her study the author assumes the fact that the considered type of phrases is a combination of a functional verb and prepositional or nominal phrase containing a noun in the nominative, genitive, dative or accusative case, which also serves as the predicate in the sentence. Special attention is paid to differentiation of verbal-nominal word-combinations and phraseological units of German language. In addition, the article discusses the morphological features of the German verbal-nominal word-combinations in view of the morphological form of the nominal component and a valence as a means to achieve the structural and grammatical completeness of such formations. In accordance with the selected morphological and syntactic features  the author determines the functional features of the verbal and nominal components of the noted phrases and categorizes them according to these criteria, highlighting the structures with a different number of optional and obligatory actants presented by the objective complements in the nominative, dative and accusative cases and prepositional phrase.
